Short biography

Robin received his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from ETH Zurich in 2012, focusing on control theory and aerospace engineering. For his Master thesis "Cooperative quadrocopter ball throwing and catching", he was awarded the ETH-Medaille 2013 and the Hans-Eggenberger Preis 2012. Since August 2012 he is a doctoral candidate at ETH Zurich under Professor D'Andrea. Among other things, Robin is interested in pushing the performance of dynamical systems closer to the physical limits. His research is carried out in the Flying Machine Arena.
